Daniel Mihai Popescu44,271My Peacemakers!It's an old circle of highly valuable friends :)A "+1" will be highly regarded when I'll find again the opportunity to log here. You see me posting, but I do it from my browser. If you feel neglected, please don't be, because you are all in my heart, in your deserved place. #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle #maximumperformance Have a nice week, dear friends and future friends!2014-04-14 19:41:21494393150CC G+
Daniel Mihai Popescu42,089This is Cats 2, a growing circle :) #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle #maximumperformance (based on Cat Circle recently shared by +Simona AN , meaning that a little bit more than a third is taken from there, and if there are actually more than that, this is a pure coincidence)Just a "+1" will be enough, my friends and future friends :)2014-03-31 12:46:11386343141CC G+
Daniel Mihai Popescu41,745I do not remember why I have called this circle Zero when I gave it this final form. Anyway, it's a circle of value, it's not a "push". So, don't feel obliged with anything. A "+1" will be greatly appreciated.Thank you very much! #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  I still have some great difficulties to connect properly to G+, so I hope that you understand that. "Engagement" means connecting. I have to assure you that you haven't lost me :) Of course, if you feel that I don't "interact" with you as much as you like, don't be afraid and uncircle me! 2014-03-28 10:52:1148713273168CC G+
Gailen Mapes61,135Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  T-Z - 22 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting Feburary 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mape2014-03-22 10:45:02144617CC G+

Daniel Mihai Popescu39,070The Engagers!I have experimenting some technical difficulties with G+, so please be patient with me.If by "engagement" you meaning "sharing circles", it's something I have ceased to do from a few months now.It is more important to be in a circle, so people who add it, will add you as well, don't you think?I do not pretend anything from you in exchange to be in my circles, even if I know that it is customary to promise the moon if someone shares your circles and pats your back (this is a very euphemistic way of putting the problem). My circles are not based on that. I have expressed my opinions several times, so who knows me, in fact knows them too. I'm not teasing "new" ones to add me back, so that's not my circles' purpose.I have shared this one with the circle too, and  I hope you are all, just fine :)A "plus one" will be greatly appreciated. Thank you! #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle If I forgot someone, don't worry, I have many circles and circles combinations :) I have shared so little in the last weeks, because I couldn't log into G+ directly. Today looks like a miracle. Yesterday I could log for exactly ten minutes. But I keep the flow open, because I post directly from the browser or the blogs which have G+ buttons.The thing I'm most sorry for not being able to log in, is that I can't say "happy birthday" to the people celebrating their birthdays when I'm not here :)I hope they'll understand.2014-03-04 20:56:2045712276168CC G+

Vũ Phá1,285 STOP!! Before you share this circle please read everything detailed below:This is the newest release of my #topengagers  circle.  This week I wanted to give this circle a SERIOUS overhaul. So I deleted it. Then, I started with the adding back the core G+'ers of this circle (if you don't know who they are start engaging more!!) and I then added in those who shared the circle previously and whose posts were high quality.  I am sure some have slipped through the cracks, so if that is you please do not be offended, but be certain to get in touch with me. This circle is the result of the overhaul.  Add this circle only if you are interested in great content, great engagers and helping make G+ a better, more social place.  To Be Included Next Time1. Make sure your posts are quality2. Be a great G+ member3.

Justin Hill22,577338 Photographers :- Due to a post I saw float past in my stream today I am suddenly aware of the fact that I have not shared any of my circles for a very long time. So to rectify that here's my circle of photographers. If you are missing from this circle you are most probably in my other photography circle that is HDR based...if you are also missing from that one then I am sorry as I simply cannot add everyone that crosses my path or stream. Enjoy...2013-10-11 14:09:1333813411CC G+

Rusty Ferguson5,790The Rusty Ball of Photographers Edition #2If  you were notified then you are included in this shared circle.In this circle, you will find some very good photographers and some amateurs too. Please support these photographers by sharing this circle.If you are a included in this circle, please reshare publically. It will help your work to be found by others if everyone or even many will do that.If you are not a photographer, please share to increase the chance that you will be included in another circle.I attempt to visit the profile of each person in this circle to confirm they are in fact sharing photos on G+.  There are a few people in here to help with the distribution of the circle, some special friends that work with me on G+.Do you want to be in my balls? LOL Okay my circles. I just couldn’t resist. I do things a little different. I’m not trying to have the biggest circle share on G+ if I do, that’s great but it is not my goal.I add people to engagement circles based on pluses, comments and reshares.  I also consider profile completion. If you do all four, then you’ll likely be shared four times a week on most weeks. However, I take a random sample of post so people can’t just engage once and hope to be included later. If you both comment and reshare and plus, then you get included in all three circles. If you’re profile is completed and you do one or more of the above, you’ll also be included in the circle that only folks with completely profiles get into.I know its not as simple as some make it but then that’s my style. I love comments and love to get to know you so hope you’ll comment when you have something to say about what I post. I can’t get to know you from a plus. I have also started a community for sharing your own photos. Joining it will also increase your chance of being included as I count that as engagement. You can join that community here: http://goo.gl/i56uSNI have two websites that you might be interested in. Visiting is not required but comments on articles are included in engagement and very much appreciated.For Internet Marketing and Social Marketing visit: >>>>>>> http://www.tantalizingweb.com/blogFor my adventures in the Philippines, see >>>>>>>> http://www.excitingcebu.comHope you enjoy the photographers, adding this circle will get you more quality photographs from those that produce the content.Thanks,Rusty #therustyball   #rustyball   #circleshare   #sharedcircle  2013-08-14 14:47:29422965793CC G+

I posted a different version of this single exposure image that was edited in only Lightroom.  I've reprocessed it using only PS and I like this version much better.
Along with this photo I'm also posting the full list of my tutorials. For those of you more "hands on" I've also added at the top a link to our "Capture the night" workshop taking place May 23, 24, 25.

While +Ron Clifford and myself were driving along the road looking for a suitable location for our Capture The Night  Weekend Photography Workshop (http://darkclearskies.blogspot.ca/p/workshops_5.html)  we came across some deer near the side of the road.  Like any good photographers I stopped the car, and Ron started shooting.  What happened next was a bit of a surprise to both of us.

Capture The Night – Weekend Photography Workshop – May 23, 24, 25 to coincide with the chance of capturing a strong  new meteor shower from Comet 209P/LINEAR.
This image is a panorama of one of the pre-scouted locations Ron and I discovered on recent journey to the area.

Join us for our annual Ontario Night Photography Workshop  at a Location North of Peterborough Ontario (one of the possible locations pictured here) to set up for a night sky long exposure workshop.  
This a great opportunity to have a chance to learn about long exposures at night, scouting locations, light painting your foreground objects, composition and if skys permit, the chance to photograph an active meteor shower along with star photography!  This is an exceptional opportunity to increase your chances getting those night shots you always hoped you could.

So here is what I'd call one of my favorite images from the pre-scout +Ron Clifford  and I did yesterday.
The day was totally awesome!  We saw literally over 100 deer and even had a couple of them come right up to the open window of the car from where we were shooting.  Ron even got a kiss on the hand from one.
Ron and I have decided that we will be holding an anual Capture The Night – Weekend Photography Workshop, with the dates being  May 23, 24, 25, 2014 this year.
Why those dates??  
Becase there just may be a chance of capturing a strong  new meteor shower from Comet 209P/LINEAR.  Not only could this be the best shower of year,  some models have labled it as our best chance for a meteor storm (over 1,000 meteors an hour) in quite a few years.
For more informantion and to reserve one of the limited spots follow this link to Ron's website.http://... more »

Just a little teaser because it's not good to deprive yourself of sleep and then edit photos.

This is not what I'd call my best image from a little outing I had yesterday with +Ron Clifford , but it is one that I like.
We were out scouting for a future event when Ron suggested we give this quaint little area a try.
Despite falling through the snow (several times) we made it to our north looking vantage point.  Between the great company, uncountable stars above, and the roar of the spring time rapids it was a very successful scouting trip.
and I'm not even mentioning the hundred or so deer we touched saw 

Carry on, I'm going for a nap.  3 hours is not enough sleep to edit photos.

Here is take two on the Watchman in Zion. This is my preferred comp of the two but I held off on working on this one initially for two reasons. One, my buddy +Chris Lazzery  who was standing directly to my left here had just published an almost identical composition (pretty much unavoidable if you are going to shoot from the bridge). 

Two, there are definitely times where I will delay processing my favorite composition. Sometimes a little time and perspective lets you figure out exactly where you want to go with an image. In this case, I received a test print of the last photo I posted from Zion and decided it came out a little bit too unnatural for my tastes. Despite the fact that the cliffs were really blazing away in the moonlight I felt like a slightly more subtle processing treatment captures the feel of the night better in my eyes.

Finally!

While this image is far from perfect, I'm pleased that I was finally able to get a plane in front of the moon.  This is a single exposure, taken the other evening while I was trying to do something completely different :-).  The moon is a bit blurred because it's still very low on the horizon, the effect of shooting through lots of choppy sunset air.  For past efforts (near misses), check out the following posts:

Another Tutorial   http://tinyurl.com/ob2lztj
This one focuses on what settings to change to better use Stellarium as a tool for planning your landscape astro shots.
I originally shared this in the wee hours of the morning.  I unfortunately have a bad habit of sharing things when many are not online.
Sooooo,  to remedy the situation, here is the tutorial I posted earlier.

Another Tutorial to help you set up that night shot
+Stellarium +Darryl Van Gaal
As both a landscape, and deep space astrophotographer I find myself using Stellarium (stellarium.org) on a weekly basis.  It's a great (free) program and in my opinion is one of the best out there competing with programs that cost hundreds of dollars.
I like it for the ease of use along with the reality of the night sky.  If you use the right settings, the sky you see in Stellarium is strikingly similar to the sky you'll see when you look out your door.
Like I said, I do believe that it is an easy program to learn the ins and outs of,  BUT, like anything, there is still a learning curve......

Snow and the cold

-16°C Feels like -25°C  (for my friends south of the 49th that would be 3°F  Feels like -13°F)
As my post stated the other day, it looks like the March Lion has eaten the lamb.... We got about 20 cm of fresh snow (8 inches) and the temperatures took a nosedive...  BUT....  I had a bit of time to head out in search of some interesting shots....  
The unfortunate part is that I didn't find what I was looking for.
The fortunate part is that there will be other days, and I didn't let the night become a total waste.  I took a selfy with the new 3 cylinder econo-ride.   Yep, it's a road that doesn't see much action.

Looking back in time
This image is one of my earliest night images.  I'm not sure what exactly got me hooked on night photography, but it definitely runs through my veins today.  Sadly, I do have a day job that gets in the way of my passion.  But eating is pretty important too.

I think that this is one of the images that got +Sandra Parlow and myself talking in the early days too.

Transitioning from goalie to goalie coach
(I'm not the photog)
When I hung up the pads a couple of years back, I didn't think I'd be posting some images from my son's first shut-out as the next tender in the family.  With the lack of goalie coaches in the minor hockey system I've been elected appointed forced to become his goalie coach.  Coaching your own child is very difficult as you tend to expect more than you would another child.
On the flip side of that coin, I also stress more than I would from another child being in net (more than my son stresses about it too).
This weekend he posted his first shut-out in the semi finals of an out of town tournament.  I had a hard time watching the last minute or so of the game as the other team ended the game with a flurry of activity around my son's crease.
He stood his ground and got the job done though!!!

Follow up Post ISO Comparison
Yesterday I posted a photo labelled "What to expect".  In my usual posting fashion I sat down at the computer and let my fingers do the walking.  My posts are usually typed as thoughts come into my head, and little if any proof reading takes place afterwards.
+Lori Hibbett and +Jim Davis both brought up some fantastic points and vital information that I was remiss to not include in the post.

Like any photography, getting the camera settings right are the key to any good photograph.  Here is a quick comparison of how ISO changes how much light is gathered.  Obviously there are also exposure time and the aperture of your lens that will change the way a photo looks.
In the below comparison, everything except the ISO remains constant.  The lens was an 18-70mm f3.5   The exposure was 20 seconds, the camera was a Nikon D7000,  Theskies we... more »

What you should expect

With so many people delving into Night Sky Photography we see some pretty awesome images of the Milky Way.
Most of the images you'll come across have been very heavily processed to bring out details and colors in the stars, reduce noise, and bring out details in the landscape.  Many are stacked and layered to add data without adding streaks to the stars, and then later blended into a single long exposure of the landscape.
What exactly does an unprocessed image look like????
I don't think I've ever posted an image that I didn't process in LR or PS.  Today however, I thought I'd post an image that has only been converted to a JPG in photoshop.  Other than that, nothing has been done to this image.  Why would I post this??   So that you don't go out expecting to get an image SOOC like the ones you see online.

It's not been what I'd like to call a great start to the photographic year for me.  I've had some health setbacks with my feet (or foot) and back acting up...   Oh, it's nothing overly serious, but enough to be an annoyance.  This coupled with the horrible weather (cold and snowy) and cloudy skies, I haven't ventured far from home.
In fact, I've only ventured out even close to home on a couple of occasions so far.  Hopefully that changes soon.
Here is an image from one of my jaunts close to home.

A sore facet joint + two photographs + Adobe Photoshop = blending practice!

Since I'm not able to go out shooting lately due to the inclement weather and a sore back, I figured I'd take the time and hone in on the skills of blending two separate images into one piece of art!

Yep, this is art, not a photo.

Camelopardalis Meteor Shower
and perhaps some exciting news from +Ron Clifford  and myself
I'm sure a few of you have heard about the new kid in town.
The Camelopardalis meteor shower is projected to appear in the northern sky on the early morning  3am EST. of May 24, 2014.  Those of you in North America will have the best vantage point.
Many have predicted that this shower will be relatively short lived in duration, but will produce between 100-400 meteors per hour, with an outside chance of up to 1000 streaks radiating from Camelopardalis.

Camelopardalis is a constellation nestled in the Northern sky between Cassiopeia and Ursa Major.

As you can see in the screen capture that I made from +Stellarium there is a red box, that red box represents the field of view in a DSLR using a 1.5x crop sensor and an 18mm lens.   I added theyellow ... more »

This is one shower you won't want to miss
In the wee hours of May 24th, 2014 I would  suggest you keep your eyes, and camera lenses pointed towards the northern sky.
Thanks to Comet 209P/LINEAR, the earth is due to plough through it's dust trail which is thought to contain several 1mm size pieces.
What the heck does that mean
To put it in basic terms - it is predicted to be the don't miss shower of the year eclipsing all other meteor showers.  The hourly rate is conservatively listed as 100-400 while there are a couple "models" out there suggesting that the ZHR (zenith hourly rate) could reach as high as 1000/hr.

For you prospective star shooters, stay tuned for more exciting information regarding May 24th.

Tutorial list at bottom of post

It's been a while since I've posted a list of my tutorials on G+
One thing that I've always thought is that the internet and a bit of knowledge is a wonderful thing in the right hands.

Heavenly Minimalism

Luna and Jupiter had a rendezvous tonight, and I couldn't help but take a candid shot of the meeting.

Obviously the moon is on the right, and that little dot on the left is Jupiter

 This technique is very simple and very effective.  The nice thing about my tutorial is that I show you how to do it yourself.  I’m not a fan of “presets” that take the adjustment factor out of your hands.  I’d rather show someone how to do it for themselves.  That way you can actually expand your knowledge and learn to help yourself and others around you.

Darryl's Digital Creations
I took one of my photos and decided to Photoshop the heck out of it.

I hope you enjoy the visualization

I liked his shots so much I bought the disk!
